of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines

, the pure logic of his most famous utterance. the former secretary of defense said, there are things we know we know, the known known, there are things we don't know, the known unknowns and lastly, the things we don't know we don't know we don't know, the unknown, unknowns. the simplicity makes us nostalgic for clear thoughts. reporters are driven to get the answers to their questions -- the known unknown. but the unknown unknown, what really happened behind the closed doors, really disturbs our sleep. only if they let their imaginations run riot does the possible story behind the story become the nightmare -- what really happened. where is the truth? and worse -- what if the competition beats us? many are driven to guessing or falling for persuasion by special interests. only with the passage of time -- much time -- may solve the riddle. jonathan pollard was and is such a case. the story of a notorious spy who passed critical and classified informs to israel and possibly to other countries. to many, he is a martyr for the jewish cause. he grew up in america and was working as a civilian nav
thought was going to happen, because he saw a handful of republicans on shows saying if any of the defense spending increases are not carried out, when he missed was they were recycling the same four or five republican politicians and that is certainly not where the country is, not with the moderate republican party and not where the republicans in the house and the senate art. there are guys on the spending committee that would like to spend money and that's understandable but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to get the pentagon more flexibility that they need for the same amount of dollars promised the sequester as the rest of the government does and so the president misjudged, believing that republicans would panic during negotiations on the fiscal cliff. he kept waiting for the republicans to put the sequester on the table in order to give it away. that never happened. what the republicans did was -- and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh god i'm going to get my tax increase down the republicans are about to give up on the sequester. the
evidence and should only be allowed if substantiated and directly related to a defense, not as a means to tarnish the image of the victim in the eyes of the jury. has travis alexander's image been destroyed by his trial, by this trial? >> it has. and i don't like what's happened to travis here. but this is our system. here's the problem. she needs that right to a fair trial. everybody does in this country. we're all entitled to it. if we get into the nuances of her claim wasn't substantiated, we have a problem with the fair trial rights. imagine somebody abused and they kill someone, i'm not saying jodi, because her story is full of lies, but let's say that happens, and that person never talked to anybody, never told anybody about it, does that mean we wouldn't let her use claims that were unsubstantiated because she didn't tell somebody else or talk to someone else? that's an example, but you got to preserve somebody's right to put on a case. >> sunny? >> yeah, i completely agree. i hate it when i was trying these kinds of cases, these domestic violence cases where you had a victim, a

of the best parts, it gets our priorities right. and it provides for the common defense. there is only a few things we should be doing here, but it provides that. it replaces and repeals the president's sequester and makes sure our men and women in uniform have what they need. i encourage my colleagues to support this bill that gets our economy growing and has our priorities right and protects and preserves those programs for our seniors and provides for the common defense. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. the gentleman from maryland. mr. van hollen: let's be very clear. if you give states one-third of the amount of money they are currently getting from medicaid and ask them to do the same job, which is what this budget would do just 10 years from now, you will, as the nonpartisan independent congressional budget office, say, quote, reduce access to care. that's the bottom line. with respect to the voucher program, premium support again, i don't really care what label you attach to it. the impact is the same. if you want to achieve the out-years budget savings our
with the defense department can or cannot do for the good of this nation? not one caller picked up on that. to me, it's just ill-informed people i mean, you have to open your eyes. like i said, he was a true liberal, i truly was, but my eyes were opened a while ago. that's the problem, just being informed. host: bob from philadelphia, pennsylvania, thanks for the call. we're talking about this new report that chairman reince priebus is releasing today. here's a little bit more on that $10 million for outreach that's from "the washington times" today. host: a "washington times" story points out to build long-term personal relationships, the r.n.c. plans to dispatch asian, hispanic, and black republicans as the chairman's personal envoying to community events and citizen swearing-in ceremonies. host: we're talking about this effort all morning with just republicans in the first 45 minutes of the washington journal. jay is up next from pennsylvania. good morning, jay. caller: hi. host: go ahead. caller: yes, i've called before about this issue, and i'll call again. i try to stay within the parameter
to a question the president seemed a little defensive about why the united states during his administration has not authorized military force to stop the slaughter in syria. listen to this. >> i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily. if it doesn't, then people say, why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing them into the blothem -- an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> did you get the sense the president is on the same page as far as syria is concerned with jordan king abdullah nearly half a million syrian refugees have poured into jordan over these past two years. >> dealing with the refugee crisis, yes. the president says we'll send more money. we'll try to get more humanitarian aid. i'll pick up the phone and get you more help. nobody knows what page they're on when it comes to th
-immigration reform, and then i heard some very against. i heard panels that were very strong on national defense and having a strong role for the u.s. and international security, and i heard some that were rather isolationist in saying we need to back off. i think there was a lot of debate going on. you could either see it as healthy or you could see it as not healthy. >> frank keating, where are you with all this? >> well, i mean, cpac, i was the emcee once for one of their -- >> former governor. >> dinner several years ago. it really is a spring stew. you have conservatives. you have social conservatives. you have economic conservatives. you have libertarians. and rand paul won the cpac poll. what is his viewpoint? his dad's, i guess, would be legalize heroin, get rid of nato. i mean, it's a very, very -- >> he wants to cut the department of education. he wants to stop aid to -- >> it's all over the place. that to me is the conservatives, not the common denominator of the party. what is the common denominator of the party i think is growth, opportunity, incomes, making us finally address this
. the nuclear issue that's a top issue for president obama's agenda. on friday, defense secretary chuck hagel said there are these plans to beef up missiles after north korea said it was going to be trying to have its preemptive nuclear strike against the u.s. or launch one. you recently visited north korea. kim jong-un. what do you make of their aspirations towards their nuclear program, and what it means for us here in the u.s.? >> well i've been to north korea many times, but you still can't figure out what's going on with the new leader. the bad side is that he's making a lot of negative, provocative statements. the north koreans going out there and being very threatening. i think it makes sense for secretary hagel to say we're prepared. we're going to shift some of those interceptors to north korea. away from building in towards and against russia, which makes sense, which may help our american-russian relationship which is key in what we're trying to do with sanctions with iran. i think all in all, it makes sense with what the new secretary of defense is doing with north korea. >> what
supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he has to persuade prime minister netanyahu, that in fact he is not bluffing, that the u.s. would take military action if needed and israel presumably would prefer to have the u.s. with them this he can't really do it as easily alone. they're going to try to get closer on the same timeline on iran. and of course there
attorney that was released last night. the paternos believe "any attempt to use this recording as a defense of joe paterno is misguided and inappropriate." a source tells me that came after they consulted with a child sex abuse advocate who had been working with them on this case for a long time. >> do we know if there's anything else that is revealing that is going to come out of this doc that would give us any sense of jerry sandusky's thinking and his mindset regarding all this? >> i think it's important to note that this documentary isn't definitely going to happen. the filmmaker who did this interview is trying to raise the money to do the documentary. so it might not even come to fruition. but at this point he says his entire motive is to give joe paterno his "day in court," which jerry sandusky already had, but a lot of people of course believe joe paterno was wronged. >> all right. sara ganim, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >>> there was a crash, injuries and then a brawl. this is all on track at nascar. wait until you see it. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'
for the bizarre today. at one point the prosecutor asked the defense psychologist if he he had feelings for the defendant. the woman on trial for stabbing her ex-boyfriend 27 times shooting him and soliciting his throat. feelings for her? that psychologist had testified that based on his findings jody dia.o. -- arias tried to avoid thoughts and feelings and said that was one of the reasons why he diagnosed her with prost traumatic stress disorder. the prosecutor pointed out that the defendant had agreed to not one but two television interviews which aired on 48 hours. wait until you hear how that argument unfolded. >> isn't it true that she discussed feelings, conversations associated with the trauma in the 48 hours interview? >> yes. >> so, again, that speaks against what the number one, doesn't it? >> i'm sorry, i don't see it that way. >> right. you wouldn't see it that way because you have feelings for the defendant, right? >> i beg your pardon, sir. >> shepard: today mark the psychologist's sixth day on the witness stand. he testified that ptsd may explain why jody diarias may not
at the major sectors. 2-1 advancing declining to stocks. slightly more defensive tone of the market. when you get health care and consumer staples up there in the market leaders, that's a slightly more defensive tone. health care just went negative as you can see there. take a look at the earnings situation. mike ron for once didn't complain about pricing. we saw some nike on the upside as well, and tiffany also as well on their earnings report. oracle, fedex, caterpillar, that's going to weigh on the markets. here we are for the quarter. five trading days. you know what's remarkable to me, simon. back a year or two ago uncertainty in cyprus would have been a down day. they would have known what we're going to happen. call everybody and we think there's going to be a resolution over the weekend so the psychology is flipped around to the idea that it's going to be resolved. >> europeans have got their act together as well. we didn't know if they were asleep on the job. >> thank you very much. >> technicians are getting excited about apple. let's head down to the nasdaq. seema modi has all the
telling them what self defense firearms to own and he can't buy america. he is so reckless in terms of his comments on the whole gun issue. >> it is so interesting and consistent, perry, the way he is framing this issue, which is that people getting into your business. michael bloomberg is getting into your business. it is not about the issue necessarily per se, but the message from the nra is telling the rich guy to stay out of my business, right? >> exactly. they also made this argument that bloomberg is the guy trying to ban you from getting your big gulp drinks, trying to cast bloomberg as the villain, big government guy in your face. that said, on background checks and gun control, something like 90% of americans support extended background checks. he is not in the minority but in the strong majority. his money can reinforce that message. they vote on their personal beliefs and policies in their state. we are talking $12 million in 13 states, that's not that much money, sounds like a lot. one million per state won't decide how a senator votes. they decide based on what people in their
was going to be asked to do something very hard, which inevitably puts each leader in a defensive crouch. given the environment, the ability to have serious discussion that is could lay a basis for moving forward i think may well have been done in this trip and we'll see what comes now in the aftermath of the secretary of state. the measure of the trip won't be what happens this week or next, it's going to be what happens over the next couple months. >> yeah. guys, to both of you, the president said during the press conference with king abdullah, that the u.s. is in a no-win situation in syria. it's criticized when it takes military action. it's krit siced for not taking military action. so what then are the options on the table, martin? >> well, the americans are insisting they need to act within the international community. it can't be up to the united states always to send in troops, and i don't really think that people in the region are expecting that, but there needs to be some kind of effort made to enable -- my feeling is a clear winner in syria. we're all talking about the emphas
. and the other is defensive marriage act which defines marriage at a federal level. what you're going to see a lot of focus on two justices, anthony kennedy and chief justice john roberts, they see the wave developing in support of gay marriage. we have seen that developing. it's moving quickly. what they're likely to do is create the space for states to make their own decisions. look at this clue from anthony kennedy from a speech this week, a democracy should not be dependent for its decisions on a nine from a legal background have to say. >> turning to another controversial issue and that's gun control, overnight, mayor bloomberg is going to be spending $12 million in new tv ads for tougher gun law and he'll target both democrats and republicans. the assault weapons ban that president obama had pushed all but dead in the senate, even though the president is going to push for a vote. this will come to the floor of the senate when they return from their two-week easter break in early april. the president will continue to push. but the real issue now, is whether or not, the senate will expan
and don't want to toll them what self defense firearms to own. he is so reckless in terms of the comments on the gun issue. >> the senate is expected to debate gun control legislation next month after returning from the easter recess. >> john kerry made a visit to iraq sunday. he met with prime minister alaba. >> the issue is flying over iran allegedly flying over iraq to deliver stuff to syria. >> that is part of what they talked about. they talked about the local leblgss going on in iraq and of course talked about the iraq's drone in syria. secretary of state john kerry is putting pressure on iraq's president to stop forces from using the airspace to transport what he claims to be weapons and fighters in its fight against rebel forces on the ground. >> i made it very clear that for those of us engaged in an effort to see the president step down and to see a democratic process take hold with a transitional government according to the geneva commune kay for those of us engaged in that effort anything that supports president assad is problematic. >> problematic indeed. iraq however along w
defense of marriage act and karl rove says he can see the 2016 presidential candidate favoring gay marriage so why the change and is this a financial play? >> yeah, one of the interesting details we're seeing is the donor collar of republicans is strongly behind republicans changing on gay marriage and actually rob portman who recently switched his view had just been kind of hammered in private meetings by the big new york donors on this issue so it's kind of an interesting development. >> will more republicans come on board do you think? >> it's kind of a -- the point is that there is a financial incentive for the party to open its position on the issue, that they could see donations from wealthy ben factors in places where this is more accepted. >> so you're saying money speaks? >> i think it does. i mean i think that's a driving force here and also, you know, the general change in culture. >> all right, well, let's shift to this because on gun control new york mayor michael bloomberg is submitting million on ads in favor of expanded background checks. can it have an influence on
